The purpose of writing this book goes back to my childhood. I grew up in the South. There were not many teachers of the Word, who had the wisdom of God that could give us reasons for why we needed to be saved, it was basically what they were taught and it was passed down to my generation. At the age of 13, I had a desire to receive Jesus Christ into my heart. When I went to church, I was told to wait on the morning bench from Monday through Thursday, until I was ready. I was told that if I would receive him into my heart, he'll he put a burning in my soul. I really didn't understand at all what that was about. Working on the cotton fields of Mississippi and the sun being hot all the time, one hot afternoon, I indeed felt a burning in my heart. Saying all of that, being saved all of those years, I really didn't understand how I was saved. I was told that it was about works: such as Water was the only thing that saved you or that you had to do so many types of works that God would save you. Not knowing till later in my adult life, that it is only by the shed blood of Jesus are we born again. God put us into his family. Man has nothing to do with my salvation. I believe that once a person who is born again, they will know how to explain to someone else God's Salvation and how someone else can be partakers of Christ's Life. Romans 8: 9- But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.-. Then there will be those who are unsaved, and they will have knowledge and understanding of how they can be saved. James 1: 21-Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, andreceive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. Romans 10: 9,10- That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Jesus Christ is the only way for man to be saved. So in conclusion, once you read this book, "May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened" Ephesians 1: 18 and that you'll be able to explain to others God's Plan of Salvation.
